Bell Witch “Longing” DLP now shipping // Revolver distribution

Now shipping:

Bell Witch “Longing” DLP is FINALLY shipping now from The Flenser.

Bell Witch is a minimalist doom duo from Seattle comprised of drummer Adrian Guerra and bassist Dylan Desmond (of Samothrace fame). Uniquely sorrowful, Bell Witch is as much akin to Skepticism as they are to Codeine. Longing is 1 hour and 10 minutes of doomed desolation, sadness and sorrow. Originally released on CD and digital formats by Profound Lore Records, Longing was one of the most important doom albums of 2012 featured on numerous year end lists. 

This album faced a number of production delays and was recut twice before we got it right. This is a double LP housed in case-wrapped gatefold jacket with an insert. As of right now about two thirds of Pre-Orders have shipped. Thank you to everyone for waiting. 

You can order the album direct from The Flenser now. We even have a few copies of the limited edition on red vinyl left.

Wholesale copies of the album can be ordered exclusively from Revolver USA.

Distribution

We are proud to announce that The Flenser is now exclusively distributed by Revolver USA. You can order our releases wholesale now from Revolver. They are the only distributer that will be selling wholesale copies of Bell Witch’s “Longing” DLP and the only US distributer that will be selling wholesale copies of the Skagos “Anarchic” CD.

Revolver is an independent music distributor located in San Francisco that distributes many of our favorite labels including 20 Buck Spin, Profound Lore and Neurot.
